Kalimantan vormt het grootste deel van de Indonesische zijde van het eiland Borneo, een naam onlosmakelijk verbonden met de lokroep van avontuur voor alle rechtgeaarde reizigers. U vindt er geen halfwilde Dayak krijgers meer – hoewel ! – maar wel bijzondere steden en natuurparken waar orang-oetans een veilige thuishaven hebben. De interessantste provincies zijn Kalimantan Tengah en Kalimantan Selatan (Centraal- en Zuid-Kalimantan). Samen beslaan ze ongeveer 30% van de hele oppervlakte van Borneo. Deze trip concentreert zich op Tanjung Puting, een inmiddels legendarisch orang-oetan rehabilitatie centrum aan de rand van wat er nog overblijft van de eens alomvattende jungle van Borneo. Vanuit de Rimba Lodge verkent u een fascinerende omgeving. Ze bieden een onvergetelijke combinatie van leerzaamheid en ontroering. Voor meer informatie, raden wij u warm aan http://www.orangutan.org te bezoeken.
